Also see . . .  Lincoln Highway Road Guide: Lisbon to Minerva. Minerva is the site of an old gas station on the southwest corner of Market Street and Lincoln Way, which predates the transcontinental route by a couple years or so. This is one of only a few old-fashioned corner buildings which have survived along the route in Ohio. The property provides a nice gateway to one of the prettiest little downtown areas in the state.
